This article is about the 1993 Major League Baseball season only. For information on all of baseball, see 1993 in baseball.

The 1993 Major League Baseball season was the 93rd held between the American and National Leagues. It was also the final season of two division play in each league, before the Central Division was added the following season, giving both the NL and AL three divisions each.

Sixteen years after the American League expanded from 12 to 14 teams, the National League finally followed suit, with the Colorado Rockies and the Florida Marlins joining the NL.
